Year 10 Work Experience - July

Year 10 Virtual Work Experience Opportunity

The Year 10 Work Experience Week planned for July 2020 has been postponed due to Covid19.  However, we have been busy working on setting up a Year 10 Virtual Work Experience opportunity in partnership with other agencies.

Organisations from the engineering and construction industry are coming together to organise a week long virtual work experience programme for any students in Year 10 who are interested in a career in engineering, construction, architecture or sustainability. Students will have the opportunity to design a sustainable building, exploring the range of processes that are involved in design and construction, and they will be supported by professionals in these fields. The week runs from 18th-22nd May and students will need to register their interest by Wednesday 13th May


Learning in Lockdown

Esteem Pavilion Work Experience

Learning in Lockdown is a STEM-focused work experience initiative, which is suitable for young people interested in the built environment sector and who want to pursue careers in construction, design/architecture, engineering and sustainability.

Industry funding is being secured to provide, support and accredit the experience for students who complete the week, which includes a challenging 30-hour programme. This will be hard work. It will require investigation, design, modelling and reporting skills, just like those used by professionals in the world of work. There will be input from industry experts in architecture, engineering and construction throughout. It will be really rewarding for students who are motivated in these areas.

On completion of the week’s experience and successful moderation of a final report, which all participants will submit, young people will achieve an Industrial Cadets Silver Award.

In addition, there is the opportunity to enter a national competition organised by Heriot-Watt University.  Click here for further details.

You will need to be available, with internet access, all day from 9:30am to 4:30pm from Monday 18th to Friday 22nd May (lunch break 12:30-1:30). Full attendance is required in order to receive the award.

For more information, please see the Learning in Lockdown website here.

If you would like to take part in this programme, please send an email to Miss Hardie at by Wednesday 13th May.
